Default residencia and self employment

Hi

I have been informed by a few different people that if my husband and I start our own business and register for self employment we will then be covered automatically by the system and therefore no need to apply for residencia. Can anyone tell me if this is correct as there are lots of different sites with very different advice on!!

Many thanks

To the last posters:

If you are resident in Spain then you need a residencia certificate. Yes, if you are paying into the system you will be covered for health, but the residencia is not to do with health.
It doesn't matter if you are an EU citizen ..... you still need one expatspain

Expatspain

You wont have to pay CGT if you sell and are of official pensionable age, or if you reinvest in another house.

Theoretically in your position your buyer will have to withold the tax from your payment. I'm not sure that being a resident will make any difference to you now as the tax is the same for residents and non residents now (18% I think but check that) .... its more to do with your age

NIE's are registered for life .... go to your local Police station and enquire

its completely unclear if you need residence permit. Do you need one or don't you??? there are lots of opinions some say yes and some say no, also confusing when you have a thread that starts off talking about forms then goes of on a tangent talking about tax

I got a form for NIE of another site and was told this is ok to use for NIE application and the local police wouldn't acccept this, i had to fill out there own form and go back again to the police station. The good thing is that although they only gave out so many tickets i waited an extra hour when others left and got a ticket, so it is possible to get a ticket once the people who didn't get one go home

Its not unclear
Its only unclear if you listen to these huge numbers of expats out there that think they know everything and still drive around in UK reg cars after 10 years

You need a residence certificate to be legal here

The download here afaik is the up to date one.
I've been told you get a combined NIE & residencia certificate nowadays

Correct you do need to file for residency. I have been going through the process and they do issue NIE and residency certificate both. Unless you already have your NIE which my husband did have. If you are a EU member then the process is very simple if not then it is a bit more complicated, but still goes smoothly.

I get so confused as to why if someone is going to live here they are against filing for residency. What is the big deal. Unless they are into something off colour.

I did not follow all the posts, so I apologize if I am besides your point. It is not true that everyone does need a residency in Spain. For Some EU countries and a few other countries which are considered as communitarian (such as Switzerland) , only the "certificado de Registro de Cuidadano de la Union is necessary. This can be obtained at the local national police. It is better to have this and a NIE # if you want to be able to have a "normal" life in Spain. The correct information can be found at Ministerio de Asuntos Exteriores y de Cooperación | Gobierno de España

I agree with the statement that the rules are completely confusing! They are so confusing that even most of the Spanish civil servant do not know them really and will often give you some erroneous infos.
